View Full Version : Live view sharp focusing

28-05-10, 05:05 PM
I have read a few times recently how certain photographers, amateur and professional, have Magnified their image in live view while composing the picture, to assess it's sharpness.
I have a PENTAX K7 and despite many efforts in Auto and manual , I have not been able to do this and the camera handbook is not exactly helpful in spelling out how to do this.
Can anyone help ?

Not sure about the Pentax but on my Nikon when live view is activated you just press the plus or minus sign to zoom in or out, I presume other cameras must be similar.
I think this really works better for macro or on a tripod otherwise when you zoom in it might magnify camershake handheld defeating the object.
